When I no longer answer your calls,
It’s not a sign that I no longer love you
As I watch the phone ring on and on and on,
The agony inside me tears a hole through my chest.
When I ignore your texts in a fleeting moment’s decision,
I dwell on the sound of your voice in my head, calling my name
I long for your hands that used to hold me so close,
And I sink into your warmth.
If I could talk to you once more
Without breaking down and falling to my knees,
So many things left unsaid,
Forever stuck in my throat.
I’ve learned that sometimes
The pain is so strong,
It’s easier to live with the ache
Than face you one more time.
